Once you’ve managed to grab yourself a Pokemon Egg (not one of those Lucky Eggs, which gives you double XP for a little while), you’re all ready to start the hatching process. In order to do this, you’ll need to go to the Pokemon section of your menu. You can bring this up by tapping on the Pokeball at the bottom of your screen.

Once you’re in this menu, simply tap on the Eggs tab at the top of the page, and then select the Pokemon Egg you’d like to hatch. You’ll now be prompted to place an Egg in the Incubator, confirm this and then you should see a screen telling you how long it will take the Egg to hatch. This is normally shown as an amount of kilometers you have to walk. An interesting tidbit here is that the longer you have to walk for the Pokemon Egg to hatch, the rarer the Pokemon is inside.

Simply head out and continue your Pokemon adventure and when you’ve done enough walking, the Egg will soon hatch. That’s all there is to making Pokemon Eggs hatch in Pokemon GO. What Pokemon have you hatched from Eggs? Let us know in the comments below.
